Paul's review for another Explore tour
“Although not an issue, we were not made aware of certain cost associated with the trip; firstly the cost to exit Belize into Guatemala ($20 each), and whilst a good idea as it saved any issues not knowing what to tip the staff the trips/excursions, we were not aware until we arrived that we were expected to each pay an amount for these tips. As I say, it was a good idea and we had no issues with the concept.”

“It would have been useful to know how many hours driving there would be and how cold it would be. Overall a very good trip though and much better than expected.”

“Enjoyable trip but I would suggest that the travellers are given more opportunity to explore on their own and eat out in normal Moroccan places, not just places for tourists.”
